Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Gutenberg seems to cause trouble with the media grid

  • It seem that Gutenberg causes problems with the media grid.
    After updating my WordPress 5.5 I noticed that the “media” doesnt load anymore in the backend and I see just an empty screen. The frontend side as a whole still works fine, so the pictures arent deleted or something like that. Its just the media grid that doesnt load properly anymore.
    After disabling Gutenberg, everything worked like charm again.
    Its kinda strange that Gutenberg is causing this,
    but ive tested all other plugins and only disabling Gutenberg helped.
    Anybody encountered the same Problems?

    Hi There!

    It is unlikely that Gutenberg caused the issues that said I suspect it’s related to the removal of jquery-migrate by default from WordPress 5.5, so plugins relating on deprecated jQuery APIs can break with WordPress 5.5.

    jQuery Migrate, a tool which WordPress has bundled, and enabled by default, for many years, has now been turned off by default. This is a tool intended to help developers in a transitional period, when jQuery (a framework for writing JavaScript code) was upgraded and removed some features.

    In the time since it was created, the jQuery project has received many updates, and as WordPress prepares to make the transition to updating as well, this was a required first step to make sure plugins and themes are up to date.

    There is a jQuery Migrate Helper plugin, which will re-enable the migration tool, and provide you with information about what plugin or theme might be misbehaving.

    Also, you might want to read this thread as it contains useful information about potential known issues for WordPress 5.5

    I hope this helps.
